Call for Gay Stories - Steam Bath (Cleis Press)

Post date: 14 February 2012
Deadline: 30 March 2012

Shane Allison is back at it again. This new book will be focused primarily on h0t bathh0use enc0unters. This will not be an anthology on simple h0ok-up scenarios, so the job I propose to you is turning such a stereotype on its ear.

Guidelines: Stories should be unpublished and not submitted elsewhere for publication. Stories should be 1,500 - 4,000 words, double spaced, Times New Roman 12 point font, in a Word document only. Please send as RTF format in the body of the email. You MUST include your bio (50 words MAX) and full contact info (mailing address, phone number, real name/pseudonym) on the FIRST page of your manuscript.

Payment will be $50/story and 1 copy of the book upon publication (late 2012). Contributors will retain the rights to their stories. You may submit up to two stories. Please note that the publisher has final approval over the manuscript.

Send your submission as a Word document to steambathantho@gmail.com

Please make sure to follow ALL directions. I'm getting a lot of single-spaced, non-Word document submissions without bios or mailing addresses. Please also make sure you send your FINAL version of your story, not a first (and then second or third) draft. All of the pertinent information, including a polished version of the story and your bio/contact info should be included in a single email, not multiple ones. Thank you.

If you have any questions, please email steambathantho@gmail.com

Payment: $50/story, upon publication (early 2013)
